Though Rex is now living a life full of love and affection, he was once a mistreated kitten living with neglectful owners.

While under the care of his previous owners, Rex incurred a back injury that left his two back legs paralyzed.

Now this adorable tabby will never have to worry about being mistreated again!

He was adopted by his current mom, Dasha Mineva, and has been living happily ever after.

Rex’s past is a testament to his strength and resilience.

According to Dasha, Rex doesn’t even know he’s handicapped.

Instead, Rex does everything a “normal” cat does, including playing with his toys and zooming around his home at lightening speed.

There are a few things Rex needs a little help with, but that’s what mom is there for!

Dasha helps Rex use the bathroom and scratch some hard-to-reach places.

Rex and Dasha share a special bond.

They’re a true match made in heaven!

When Dasha first adopted Rex, she had a custom wheelchair made for him.

However, Rex got around much more comfortably on his front legs and didn’t have much use for his wheelchair.

Like many other special needs animals, Rex is incredibly intelligent and adaptive.

He never lets his condition slow him down.

Fast forward 7 years and Rex is still making strides in his mobility without assistance from a wheelchair.

The two spend plenty of quality time together and document some of Rex’s most adorable moments.

It turns out that Rex has quite a knack for modeling!

He loves making expressive faces and showing off his stylish sweaters for the camera.

Rex is certainly a sight for sore eyes.

His wide eyes, ear tufts, puffy cheeks, and world famous bleps are only a few things that make this handsome tabby so striking!

The list goes on– words don’t do Rex’s charm and appeal enough justice.

This kitty is remarkable! It just kills me to think that people want to put these precious disabled animals down! They are such a gift from God! They are so loving! And they are more humane than most people!
